sinus infection while breastfeeding
prettylittlechica posted:
Im breastfeeding my 4 month old baby and I have a sinus infection, are the any otc medications I can take without it going to my baby?
alvord1 responded:
I dont think so... Maybe some nasal spray? I would ask my Primary Dr If I was you... Just to be safe. Im sure they san give you something like Amoxycillin. That is usually one that they will give you while BF'ing. I hope this helps and that your nose gets better

breast milk .... seriously, the stuff is amazing and heals all sorts of things! It cleared up DD's pink eye like magic. Pump a little and squirt some up your nose. Sounds odd, I know but it works.

If your supply is good benadryl can be taken, or even sudafed if need be, just make sure to drink PLENTY of water, without affecting LO. Neti pot may also help, used it a lot when I was pg. hth :lightsmile:
Alleeson responded:
I second the netti pot. I think it works better than any decongestant out there.
